Kevin Gates is well known by many for some of the strange headlines that have followed him throughout his career. Last year, he dropped his third studio album Khaza. The hour-long album had just one feature, Juicy J, but went on to commercial success regardless. It debuted at number 8 on the Billboard 200, marking his third straight studio album to make its debut in the top 10. In that span, he also has two other mixtapes, By Any Means 2 and Luca Brasi 3, debut inside the top 10. Earlier this year Gates released a new mixtape called The Luca Brasi Story (A Decade of Brasi). That project included features from Terrence Hines, Percy Keith, Curren$y, and Master P.

On his new song, “I Don’t Apologize” Gates is once again an open book. The track sees him reminiscing on his past and his come up in pretty explicit detail. The song follows many of the hardships of his journey including things he was forced to do and people who aren’t around anymore. But it ends with a pretty triumphant conclusion. Gates succeeds in making it to where he always wanted to be and refuses to apologize for anything that happened along the way. The track features a booming trap beat over which Kevin Gates tells fans a number of detailed stories. You can check out the song’s official music video below.

Earlier this year Kevin Gates appeared on NLE Choppa’s new album Cottonwood 2. The project also featured other high-profile guests like Lil Wayne, Fivio Foreign, G Herbo, and Rick Ross. The deluxe edition added even more big guest verses from Fridayy and Sexyy Red.

Lyrics

[Intro]
Huh
We in the great divide
You either vibrate low
Or you choose to vibrate high

[Chorus]
Make sure you keep your head up when told you won’t be nothin’
Told that a lot of times, I lost of patnas
I cried a lot of times
They said I was a problem, labeled me a problem child
I done a lot of crimes, survived a lot of times
Fast forward to modern times, I look like dollar signs
I’m drivin’ foreign cars, I don’t apologize
I’m fuckin’ foreign broads, I done a lot of dimes
I don’t apologize, I don’t apologize

[Verse 1]
We made ’em focus, it’s protocol
Pots and pans, I could cook all the soda off
Where I stand, could turn that into motorcross
Pray for every man that go to court tomorrow
Where should I begin, not scared of the pen’
My nuts ressemblin’ bowling balls
I’m one in a million, the stories they makin’ pretend
Don’t none of that throw me off, I’m goin’ off
Wardrobe consistin’ of a lot of black lately, but I’m not depressed
Bullshit approachin’ way I been respondin’ back, baby, I don’t address it
I get fresh, new private jet, cryptocurrency, I manifest
Talkin’ ’bout an NFT, ain’t got enough to pay for me
So naive of me to think that this lil’ bitch’ll wait for me
I done found out how to love myself and that’s okay with me
Now I’m diplomatic status, baby, stay away from me
I done grew into my power, I do things you can’t believe

[Chorus]
Keep your head up when told you won’t be nothin’
Told that a lot of times, I lost of patnas
I cried a lot of times
They said I was a problem, labeled me a problem child
I done a lot of crimes, survived a lot of times
Fast forward to modern times, I look like dollar signs
I’m drivin’ foreign cars, I don’t apologize
I’m fuckin’ foreign broads, I done a lot of dimes
I don’t apologize, I don’t apologize

[Bridge]
You know it’s just a celebration right now goin’ on, you know what I’m sayin’?
Yes, Lord, we just feelin’ good right now, you know what I’m sayin’?
We just, we just, I can’t be distracted, you heard me?
But bitch, I’ll, pff, I’ll send that bitch right now

[Verse 2]
Know how to refocus for gratitude
A ho better not show me no attitude
I turn your feet into feathers, breathe one the propellers, now peep out the altitude
I know how to reroute them bricks like I’m off the Smith, I’m makin’ them fastest moves
Life was stressin’ me out but I sacrificed and did what I had to do
Thankin’ God I’m livin’ this life, I won’t live it twice, I’ll never be mad at you
Say I’m in the air now and I don’t chase down nothin’ that’s tangible
I been workin’, increasin’ my stamina
Allah is the best of planners, yeah, and I’m plannin’ for the unplannable
I’m humble remainin’ and an animal

[Chorus]
Make sure you keep your head up when told you won’t be nothin’
Told that a lot of times, I lost of patnas
I cried a lot of times
They said I was a problem, labeled me a problem child
I done a lot of crimes, survived a lot of times
Fast forward to modern times, I look like dollar signs
I’m drivin’ foreign cars, I don’t apologize
I’m fuckin’ foreign broads, I done a lot of dimes
I don’t apologize, I don’t apologi
